Traditionally, for a barbecue or just any type of gathering you can expect to see one of these three on the menu. Pork, shrimp or crab. That’s mainly because these are easy to get and viewed as a delicacy, but after looking at the qualities of these animals they might not no longer be a desired meal of your choice.
Pork is now a common food among people whether in the form of ribs, pepperoni, bacon, hotdogs, ham, etc., it is consumed in most daily eating. But do they truly have an understanding of what they are eating? Here’s a look on the animal that is used for these items, the pig. The pig is a bottom feeder and gluttonous (doesn’t know when to stop eating). Known for eating scraps on farms, garbage, feces and even decaying flesh. The diet of the pig is the reason why it carries over 30 diseases, such as, parasites, bacteria’s, viruses and toxins. Which all absorbs in the fat of the pig and is transferred to our bodies when we consume it. There is no safe temperature that it can be cooked to surely know that all parasites will be killed.
When it comes to shrimp and crab, it is held at a high standard and even are considered luxury dishes. Such as crab stuffed lobster tail and shrimp scampi. It has been known that the meat of shellfish is dangerous and causes many illnesses, such as instant paralysis from eating the shellfish.

For instance, the shrimps sweep the ocean floor eating all kinds of dead animals and the crabs are like vacuums eating anything it comes across. The diet of the shellfish is the reason why it is one of the main causing foods for allergies because of the toxins that it consumes.
